Community Players Reunion This Weekend

A reunion of former members of Community Players official kicks off Saturday May 27, but many will attend a performance Friday from 6-11 p.m. at the Black Sheep Bistro featuring Michael Cerveris Jr. 

The event welcomes all  arts lovers in Huntington who participated in other theatre or dance groups around town — or supported the community simply by buying a ticket.

To register, so we can know how many people plan to be there, go to 

There is no reunion attendance fee, but we're asking people to make a contribution to help cover expenses. You can use PayPal after registering to do that.

The activities include breakfast at Debbie Novak's home, cocktails at Hattie & Nan's, a proclamation by Mayor Steve Williams, an open air 'obit' on the parking lot of the former Abbott Theater razed by Jean Dean, and a screening of "Teenage Strangler" at the Novak's home.
